Subject: Thanks for the upload
Also, it is an indisputable fact that there has never been a band - and I say this as a hardcore Deadhead with nearly thirty years on the bus - that could measure up to Lowell George Feat when they were at the top of their game. Thanks again!

I'm a big fan of the 1973 and (especially) 1974 Feat Ultra Sonic recordings (also on Internet Archive) both for performance and sound quality (recorded live in a radio studio to reel-to-reel). These Ebbets Field recordings are definitely challengers in both categories.
If someone recorded these shows in 1973 off of FM radio, they definitely had a top-notch tuner and reel-to-reel tape recorder. But I'm wondering if these weren't "pre-FM tapes" because the quality is superb and the noise levels quite low. In addition, the tuning, stage comments, and repeated songs are all included. The link listed below is to a description of the venue and the recordings, and suggests these really were professional recordings at the venue. The crowd noise, comments (including banter with the band) and ambience add character to the show.
The performances are, as I am discovering as I explore the many shows on Internet Archive, typically outstanding for mid-70's Little Feat. Most of the songs are from LF's typical stage shows for the time, but "Snakes on Everything" adds an interesting (and not overlong) jam and "Texas Rose Cafe" is another song I don't see popping up on other recordings.
I am increasingly sorry I was a bit too young (and mainstream in my tastes) to catch this band live in 70's, especially since I come from DC, a stronghold for the band, in part due to the airplay from the fantastic WHFS, whose DJ Cerph introduces the band on the "Waiting for Columbus" live CD recorded at George Washington Univ's Lisner Auditorium. Both Cerph and Lisner are still going strong today in DC. For the songs repeated on the two discs (perhaps the come from two distinct sets) it is interesting to hear the variatons.
Doing a little exploring, I found this link, http://stillisstillmoving.com/?p=325, which says that "Ebbets Field" was really a small club in an office building. And they professionally recorded a lot of shows, some of which have apparently been released piecemeal on CD.
If you want to compare some great shows, here is the 1974 Ultra Sonic show, of which there are two copies on the Archive. Here is the one I downloaded in 2004 or so, and the quality is exceptional: http://www.archive.org/details/lf1974-09-19.flac16
This one has an extra three tracks -- but the sound quality isn't as good so you might just download the last three and add them to a download of the recording at the links above: http://www.archive.org/details/lf1974-09-19.shnf
Thanks to those who posted these fantastic shows!
